St Ives and Cyder Farm Excursion
A picturesque fishing harbour and seaside town voted best family holiday destination by Coast magazine and one of TripAdvisor’s top 10 European beaches. Wander through the maze of narrow cobbled streets, independent shops and fisherman’s cottages in the heart of St Ives. Come and sample some of the tastiest award-winning restaurants, cafés and bars in the Southwest. Surf at the blue flag-rated Porthmeor beach and feel the soft sand between your toes, or set off on an inspiring walk along the coastal path towards Land’s End.
It's also home to culture with two fabulous galleries to visit. The Tate St Ives has an ever changing display of exhibitions and events highlighting some of the best modern art around. Alternatively you can discover the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, a hidden oasis in the centre of busy St Ives. Hepworth was one of the greatest British sculptors of the twentieth century. She created a secluded garden as a setting for her sculptures. Over 30 sculptures in bronze, stone and wood are on display in the museum and garden, along with paintings, drawings and archive material.
Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm
From pressing the fruit for their first ever cyder to dreaming up a unique Classic Whiskey, Healeys is about more than just apples…
In 1986 they decided to resurrect the largely forgotten art of cyder-making in Cornwall. Using the county’s wonderful produce to craft a quality cyder that everyone would love. So from a 150-year-old farm and a 16th century press they planted orchards, renovated barns until they reached the Healeys we know today – with award-winning cyders, spirits, juices and jams to our name.
Have a tour round the farm, taste some of their finest and of course pay a visit to the farm shop. For more info visit the Healeys Cyder Farm website
